Like, in that whole slew of weapons, optimus doesn't have something that can cut through cables? He can rip apart decepticons faces, but if he gets tangled up, he's out of commission.
It was ridiculous! Watching it for a third time chafed like the first. You are absolutely right, couldn't he have extricated himself? It almost makes me suspect it was an attempt at humour, but given the gravity of the situation I hardly think it would be. Why the devil would they do an image buster like that?
It felt like me that is was the only way they could come up with segwaying to the other robots. Like they gave Prime so much screen time that they decided they needed him tangled up to buy time. They didn't want to hurt him, just get him off screen for a few minutes with a (feeble) plausible explanation of where he was and what he was doing. Answer: Just hangin' around.
